    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hays plc (Nottingham, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Initially I received a telephone, and discussed aspects of my CV.
    I then had a detailed telephone interview the following week.
    I was invited into branch for a face to face interview with senior management, and the was successful and had to undertake an assessment day in Birmingham. Following this I had a final interview with my line manager, and had a day in the office, before being offered the job.

    Associate Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nottingham, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hays plc (Nottingham, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    - Telephone Interview
    - Interview with your Line Manager
    - Assessment Centre
    - Interview with your Director

    Tip for the interviews would be just to be honest and prove your driven and determined and you'll get up and do it again no matter what knocks you down. Financially driven is always a big one in recruitment.

    Assessment Centre

    - Introductions
    - Presentation from the assessors
    - Short presentation from each candidate (arguments for or against a given point)
    - Group exercise - you will be given a job and a load of CV's and as a group you have to decide the order in which candidates are suitable
    - Role play 1 - selling a candidate at a client meeting
    - Role play 2 - business development call (you will be given a scenario, it may be that they have had a previous bad experience with Hays. The key is to talk them round and CLOSE with some kind if commitment, either a meeting, call back etc)
    - Writing a job advert (have a look at the style in which Hays advertise jobs)
